OK I can make the buzzer beep if I forget the lights at night (see code from this post).
But that’s a little bit reactive, and still requires me to “move” and manually switch the light off. What would be better would be to switch the lights off altogether without requiring me to lift a finger.
This is where LightWaveRF comes into play. Not only they look really sleek, they fit in a standard connection box and are relatively cheap (when comparing with other standards).
I therefore bought a couple: 1 x 1 gang for the living room, 1 x 2 gang for the kitchen:
The way I chose to control them is to pair them with an RFXtrx transceiver via DomotiGa (see this post for more info).
I’ve still got to install the kitchen switch, but for now, I can control the living room lights from anywhere in the world !
I’ve also got some dimmable LEDs, but it turns out I can only dim them down to 50% instead of 0% (not much difference to be honest) so I might be looking for better ones soon. Watch this space 🙂
